Not a review.
RIPD is MIB without UFOs.
It's MIB with MIA DOAs instead.
RIPD stands for Rest in Peace Department
Which just doesn't make sense.
How is it "Rest in Peace",
When you have to keep working after you're dead?
Oh you mean they make other lost souls rest in peace?
Still doesn't make sense.
They certainly don't look like they're resting in peace,
Especially after being shot right between the eyes.
Anyway, Ryan Reynolds isn't annoying, YAY!
Jeff Bridges is a little annoying though. At first.
But he gets more endearing later on.
And they make a good team.
Kinda like... yeah, Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith.
But with less charisma.
OOOOH MARISA MILLER.
Cleavage rating: 9!
Though it's pretty disturbing when they switch between her and Bridges.
Funny yes, but still rather disarming.
Not enough scenes with her and the old Chinese guy though,
(No it's not what you think).
Not enough Mary Louise Parker either.
But Kevin Bacon! Yeah!
Yeah, this IS Men In Black.
With dead souls instead of aliens.
Same formula, same zippy one-liners,
Same rookie/old dude repertoire,
even almost the same "PREVENT END OF WORLD" plot.
But it's fun, at least.
Easy, mindless entertainment.
No need to hurt brain too much,
Nice visuals, fun ride,
And MARISA MILLER FUCK YEAH.
